    AbFab’s June Whitfield tops 2017 list of The Queen’s Birthday Honour

    Unfortunately, art doesn’t always imitate life. With June Whitfield being made a Dame at this years Queen’s Birthday Honor list, I might pay good money to see Jennifer Saunders’ Edina Monsoon have to address her sarcastic and thieving mother as ‘Dame’ in a new episode of Absolutely Fabulous. Marking 100 years of the Order of the British […]
